i just visited the paint link (behr) you had. they have a 70s recommendation page with a 70s color Palette, which is nice. i also like their paint visualizer better than the lowes one i was using.<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Bright contrasting colors are used throughout the home.
